REVOLTING RHYMES & DIRTY BEASTS
Adapted for the stage by shake & stir theatre co
Think you know the story of The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk? Think again.
Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts bursts off the page in a spectacular live show, taking the world’s best-loved fairy tales and rearranging them with some surprising and hilarious twists. Frighteningly funny and seriously silly, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts is the perfect family entertainment – for children 5 to 105. It delights and disgusts in equal measures.
Don’t miss this multi-Helpmann Award nominated production penned by the world’s number one storyteller and from the team that brought you George’s Marvellous Medicine.
